A master's degree is an opportunity to expand and deepen one's education in a particular field after graduating from college. Many professions require a master's degree in a related field, so students with particular career goals should keep this path of study in mind.

What is a Master in Gender Studies? This degree educates students about the complex issue of gender in modern society. Each program can have a specific focus, such as law, social work or sociology. However, all gender studies programs share the goal of preparing graduates for meaningful careers responding to societal conceptions of gender. Courses often touch on and incorporate elements of feminist revisionist history, intersectionality theory and politics.

Perhaps the most notable advantage to attaining a master's degree in gender studies is the heightened social awareness the curriculum affords students. A working knowledge of gender and the way it operates within society allows students to recognize similar cultural patterns and identify injustice in its many forms.

The costs associated with a Master in Gender Studies vary depending on the school's location and size. For the most up-to-date estimates of enrollment and registration costs, contact programs directly through the admissions office.

Many students may wonder what a master's degree in gender studies has to offer them in terms of careers. This degree opens the door to a wide range of professions, including continued research and teaching within academic circles, politics and law. As gender awareness rises, more employers seek educated individuals with a firm understanding of gender studies as consultants. Though many people who have not spent time studying gender do not realize it, gender studies is applicable to nearly every field, from media and film studies to health. Gender is everywhere, and graduates of these programs can do valuable work making it more visible to the general public.

Gender studies has much to offer, and more and more students are enrolling in programs every day. Use our searchable database of schools to find a program that matches your goals and interests.
